Robyn is a teenage girl whose people from the planet Taros have been hiding on the Moon, biding their time to assimilate with Earthlings. She grows impatient. Robyn, Tavy (a younger girl) and Kirbi (a furry tripod creature) stowaway on a mission to Earth and sneak away. They are befriended by a Wyoming rancher's son. He hides them at his open-minded grandfather's house while his parents host a senatorial campaign barbecue.Written by
The film is not all that bad but it's really geared for the kids to much for me to really enjoy and not like and not as good as E.T. but it is somewhat enjoyable. If you have kids and like Sci-Fi (or your kids do) then this is an entertaining family film.
The film movie had it's moments of being okay (from adult perspective) and I'm sure if I watched this one as a kid I would have liked it. Actually I'm surprised I've never seen this one before but then again I was 14 in 1986 and this film is geared for a younger than 10 years old audience I believe.
I would recommend this movie for a family styled Sci-Fi movie night/day. I'm sure the kids would enjoy it with that 3-eyed, 3-legged monster thingy running around who's about as annoying as Jar-Jar Binks.
